If you've ever struggled with the world of auditions, this is the book for you!
Thank you, Jason for another great chapter.
Where else can we read sage advice from Ira Gold, Edwin Barker, Leon Bosch, Owen Lee, and so many other top bassists all in one place?
There are numerous resources available for teaching - be it Simandl, Findeisen, Streicher, Zimmerman, and Orin O'Brien's invaluable Double Bass Notebook. Jason's book takes its rightful place in that body of resources.
No one should be without this valuable resource. BRAVO!!!
